44th week in 1962 and for the comparable periods during
the past four years are shown in the following table:

The number of cases of poliomyelitis for the most
recent 6 weeks in 1962 is compared to similar periods for
the previous four years in the table below:


Poliomyelitis (39th Through 44th Week) 1958-1962

Total 171 331 775 1721 1767


HEPATITIS A total of 850 cases of viral hepatitis was
reported for the week ending November 3. This represents
a slight decrease in reported cases from the previous week
(892); however, reports have been delayed from several
States.
During the comparable week in 1961, 1,112 cases of
viral hepatitis were reported. As seen in the graph above,
the number of cases in the "over 20" age group is at the
same level for 1961 and 1962, while a decreased number
of cases in the "under 20" age group accounts for the
lower total in 1962.



EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT

Fever and sore throat were each reported by four
patients and headache by five. White blood counts done
on 13 of the group showed counts ranging from 7250 to

Suspect items on the menu included the following:
beef croquettes, stuffed cabbage rolls, egg salad, bread
pudding and lemon sauce. Those who reported ill and 31


asymptomatic individuals were questioned regarding a
history of food consumption. Incidence of illness in per-
sons eating each food on the menu is shown in the table

room. One mess cook prepared the egg salad by adding
mayonnaise and relish to the chopped eggs. The salad
was placed on the food-serving line approximately one
hour before the evening meal service.
The mess cook who prepared the egg salad was
found to have a frank, purulent tonsillitis. Staphylococcus
aureus was isolated from his throat culture. Of 16 addi-
tional mess cooks, seven were found to have on their
hands open lesions with some erythema but no overt puru-
lence. From three of these lesions staphylococcus aureus
was also isolated. The staphylococcus strains isolated
were non-typable.
